The new “Brain Swaggle” mobile app. Medina resident and founder of Brain Swaggle Gary Downing says, “This game is not your typical word game and is adaptable to all ages and abilities.
What makes this game different is that there are no set group of letters to choose from nor are there letters displayed to form words. Players compete against the computer to build valid words that will end on a subsequent turn. However, the player and computer take turns giving one letter at a time. Each new letter submitted must continue to form a valid word. The real challenge is the word a player is thinking of spelling will change with each new letter given by their opponent. This will cause you to think of an entirely new word that you can end while strategizing to ensure you are not setting your opponent up to end the word.
The game options are chosen at the beginning of the match by the player that goes first.
- How much time players get to submit their letter. This ranges from 15 seconds to 60 seconds per turn.
- There are 3 match options to choose from. The first player to win 3, 5 or 10 words wins the match.
- At the beginning of each new word the computer will randomly choose the minimum amount of letters that that word needs to have before a player can end and submit that word.
- Each letter is worth points. There are no restrictions on building longer words than the minimum required. Build longer words for bigger scores!
- There are 3 levels of challenge. Easy, Medium or Hard
The game is Free to play! When players initially install the game, they receive points and power ups to help them come out of the gate strong. Once installed there is a tutorial waiting for the players.
Currently available for Android at Google Play. “Available for iPhone at the App Store later this year,” said Downing. Try it now for free and Get Your Swagg On!
